izzy

Dr. Afsaneh Latifi is a graduate of New York College of Podiatric Medicine and has 13 plus years of experience in her field of podiatry. For the past 22 years she has been living in the Upper East Side community of Manhattan. Dr. Latifi has participated in the NY and Boston Marathons as part of the medical team and has graciously taken the time to work as a Medical Assistant In Haiti and Guyana. She speaks English, German, and Farsi.

Prior to acquiring her new location in the Upper East Side of Manhattan, Dr. Latifi worked with a private podiatry office in Mid-Town. She was committed to the belief that a doctor and patient become a team for treating an individual’s feet.

Our office also provides skincare and laser treatments for women & men of all ethnicities, ages and skin types. We customize all treatments to your individual skin type, and offer a complete range of advanced spa procedures including Laser Hair Removal, Laser Genesis, Laser Vein Therapy, Laser Nail Fungus Removal and Chemical Peels. We invite you to visit our office or sign up online for a free consultation to discover the right procedure for you.

It is an easy and convenient treatment that helps turn your discolored nails into healthier looking nails. Safe and effective, this in-office treatment is pain free, and has no harmful side effects. It also provides the power needed for effective treatment of warts.

  • What patients are saying

    Doctor Latifi is a thorough and effective communicator. She called several times to confirm insurance information so as to avoid any complications which I really appreciate. The office is fabulous and I was seen immediately. Highly recommended.

  • What patients are saying

    A doctor (of any type) who treats you like a human being is quite a rare find these days. Dr. Latifi not only was highly attentive, but didn't treat me like another name on a piece of paper. Another doctor was quick to recommend surgery for my issue, but Dr. Latifi recommended that only as a very last resort. I wish more doctors out there treated patients as respectfully, kind, courteous, and well as she does.

  • What patients are saying

    Dr. Latifi has excellent bedside manner: she is very professional, kind, considerate, compassionate and knowledgeable. All of these qualities make her an outstanding Practitioner! I feel blessed to have been referred to her and would gladly refer my friends and family into her care.

Few Amazing Facts

jumping1 Don’t shrug it off!

It is not “normal” for your feet to hurt! Nobody should have to live with an acceptance of foot pain.

24830 Stiletto Sadness

Women have about four times as many foot problems as men; lifelong patterns of wearing high heels often are the culprit.

two218 More common than you’d think

Seventy-five percent of Americans will experience foot health problems of varying degrees of severity at one time or another in their lives.

human50 It starts with the foot

Your feet mirror your general health. Such conditions as arthritis, diabetes, nerve and circulatory disorders can show their initial symptoms in the feet -- so foot ailments can be your first sign of more serious medical problems.
